ALBUM ORDERING CUT-OFF DATES FOR Christmas
Please note that if you would like your album or book delivered for Christmas, it must be approved, ordered and paid for by no later than 15th November. Every year, album companies get extremely busy towards Christmas but this year especially there will be extra pressure on getting albums printed and delivered. Album companies make no exceptions for albums ordered after that date.
COFFEE TABLE ALBUMS
Coffee Table Albums are essentially where the pages are the photographs themselves. The photos/design can spread across the middle of the page without being interrupted by the fold of the book. This creates a large space to put the design of your album in.
The pages themselves are thick board giving the book a proper album feel. The albums come in a range of sizes (square/landscape and horizontal/vertical) with a full range of cover options (linen, photo, leather etc). These albums include the 1st 100 images of the design but you can add extra images as well.
Matted Albums are more traditional where the photographs sit under board mats. The albums have a traditional feel but also a contemporary edge in that they bespoke designed and hand bound. They have a wide selection of covers including leather, wood & metal as well as options for various different types of mats.
PRESS PRINTED BOOKS
Press Printed Books are much more like books than albums. Their pages are the same weight as you would find in a standard book (roughly 140gsm). The pages do not lay flat but fold into the spine. Any design using these books would tend to avoid putting anything across the spread of the page.
As the pages are much thinner, you can fit more pages in than the coffee table book. More pages means more images, twice as many. They have a full range of covers (leather, linen, photo).
The process of putting together your final album or book is the same for each style. Get get things started, I need you to choose: (1) your style of album or book; (2) the size of album or book (14x10in or 12x12in); (3) your choice of images (I’m happy to help with this, if you need). You’ll also need to chose your album cover and any extras but we can add these on at any point of the design process.
Once I have these options, I’ll go ahead and put together the initial design and put it online. You’ll be able to make as many changes to this design as you need. You can add any other extras (extra images, embossing etc) as you go along through the design process.
